I'm in love with the Applewood Inn! My husband and I spent 2 nights in Room 19--Michaelangelo-- and we couldn't have been happier. Our weekend came courtesy of a Travelzoo voucher that paid for itself three-fold! We were given an excellent rundown on the site and surrounding environs upon check-in, then --be still my heart-- we were handed two glasses of sparkling wine. (sigh)
The room had a lovely balcony with a gas firepit, though we chose to enjoy our drinks by the fireplace in the room. The jacuzzi tub was large enough for two for those inclined to share a tub, and the king-sized bed was sooooooooooo comfortable!
We enjoyed the chef's tasting menu and wine pairings at Applewood's restaurant, which was on par with the food we've enjoyed in Europe. Tasting menus are generally pretty small, but we were absolutely stuffed by the time the dessert course was delivered! The accompanying wines were also fabulous, though they were a bit too heavy on the 'whites' side for our tastes. Thank Heavens we were literally staying 20 steps from the restaurant!
Both mornings, upon awakening, we enjoyed two-course breakfasts and bottomless mimosas. Really, you had me at 'bottomless mimosas.'
On top of EVERYTHING ELSE that made Applewood a lovely place to visit, they gave us a pass for free wine tasting in the area. How cool was that?! We'll definitely return to the Applewood Inn!
